» Traditional dolls from Fukushima display in Britain’s parliament

Sixty-six traditional tumble dolls from Fukushima Prefecture are on display inside Britain’s Houses of Parliament, several of them the work of celebrity designers.

The event was organized by a group of Fukushima expatriates living in Britain.
Some of the dolls were painted by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Shinji Kagawa, a member of Japan’s national soccer team, and Frances Osborne, the wife of the British finance minister.

Later this month, the dolls will go on display at another Japan-related event in London and then sent to Fukushima for public display there.
